Kiss a Pig Gala is a unique and exciting event. The formal affair will host to an evening of dinner, live music, dancing, entertainment, auctions and the infamous pig kissing ceremony. Louisiana will add their special flare, as only Louisiana could, and be the first location to include Kid Candidates, as fundraisers. Most (or all) of the kid candidates live with diabetes and are true warriors. The top candidate fundraisers earn the privilege of kissing the pig at the gala to show appreciation for the animal’s heroic role in diabetes research as the first source of insulin.
